hi, i have tried several disks but keep coming back to datawrite classic. i have a liteon 8x+r but only 4x-r. however, last week nero was burning the 4x disk i had at 8x (resulting in them not working, or stuttering on playback. this week, i have 8x+r disks which nero offers to burn at full speed, but they dont work either. so now i have some 4x-r datawrite disks, but nero only offer 2x burning speeds. does this make any sense. thanks.

Yes it does, I very rarely burn at maximum speed because of the problems you get with data loss. I'm capable of burning at 52X but usually reduce it to 4X or 8X, its not just this computer which runs Linux, but the same with the computers at work with Nero on them. The make of the disk seems to make a difference to how fast it can be burnt.

have you checked the the DVD burners website for any firmware update?

hhhmmm. i had no problem in the past while using only 4x datawrite -r disks. they would burn at full speed i.e 4x. strange now that 8x -r only burn at 2x. i mean, they work ok, but takes half an hour. the +r 8x datawrite i have just tried burn at 8x but they don't work, stuttering and skipping chapters and such. can't figure out if it is a problem with the media, the drive not recognising the media, or nero.

The firmware for the drive does not have the write descriptor available for the 8X disc so it is defaulting to the failsafe write strategy at 2X. DVD drives are not like CD drives, it needs to be told what to do with the disc.

Try updating your firmware click here
